Blokken


Victor Hachmang completed his MA at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague. As an illustrator, he strives to combine a historically and visually rich grammar into his illustration without undermining the purpose of its narrative.

In the past year, Hachmang has been attempting to envisage the visionary world of author F. Bordewijk, transforming his early work Blokken (Blocks) into a graphic novel. Written in 1931, the Blokken novella is considered an anomaly in Dutch literary history because of its visionary quality and heavy use of stylisation – in many ways, it is a precursor to modern-day science fiction. Blokken is also one of the earliest examples of stories dealing with dystopias: it describes the prospect of a Constructivist-De Stijl-influenced utopia and its slow demise.

The book’s portrayal of the cityscape, its detailed architectural descriptions, and its sense of scale make it a challenging but rewarding work to visualise. Hachmang developed a series of Risograph prints depicting sequences that will appear in his forthcoming graphic novel.

Printed at Charles Nypels Lab and Vinex Pers. Special thanks to Eline Moormann, Jos Hachmang, Jo Frenken, Vic van de Reijt, Nijgh, Van Ditmar, and Julian Sirre.
